I am not a fruit eater. That's because I'm not a sweet tooth and I try to limit my carbohydrate intake.
But my favourite fruits are pawpaw, dragon fruit and tomatoes.
Since I'm no fruit gormandiser, I seldom consume all of the fruity harvest from outback in the time frame before spoilage.
But if I dehydrate it...well then, I can eat at my leisure.
DRIED PAWPAW is a texture thrill. Better than jerky.
TOMATOES we all know...but the big surprise is DRAGON FRUIT.
Helen dislikes DF as she considers it tasteless. All texture. But dehydrated it is another taste altogether. Like the best tasting succulent jubes.
You don't want to dry it to leather (as there would be nothing left!), just semi-dried.
So remember that next Pitahaya season: dehydrate the harvest.
My Dragon Fruits are just finishing. (I do have a late season here on the coast) . But my Pawpaws are beginning the yellowing. The harvest so far has been excellent.And I'm soon to be over rum by Tomatoes.
One of the advantages of dehydrating in this cool weather is that you can use the heat generated to dry the fruits to warm the house.
FYI: Pawpaw , Tomatoes and Dragon Fruit are all low carb fruits.
